    Question SRi T - Increase Tyre size?

    I need a new set of tyres and was thinking about fitting 225 / 40 ZR17

    Slightly wider with a slight increase in profile = more sure footed and slightly smoother ride................????????????????

    Anyone else running this size? Thoughts?

    The wider size will mean it will tramline a bit more, and the increased profile, i.e 40% of 225 rather than 40% of 215 will make your speedo under read slightly. Not sure i would go there TBH, but its your choice.
